If the Republicans who have the majority and the power and authority in

Congress think that the FISA Court and the FBI and intelligence agencies overstepped in ordering the surveillance of Carter Page, they have the ability to change the laws that permitted that surveillance.

They could have already changed those laws, but they prefer to grandstand.

Grandstanding is much more exciting than the tedious work of actually writing and passing good laws.

Grandstanding and the drama of releasing memos is more gratifying to the egos of Republicans than is the work of governing.

Let's elect Democrats and charge them with insuring that the laws that govern our justice system from Guantanamo to the FISA court to the FBI to the Supreme Court protect our rights as stated in the Constitution.

I don't think the Republicans are capable of doing that.
